It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Firetruck or ladybug? Only your three-year-old knows for sure.

Timmy holds up a bright red stacking up. He points to the picture on its side.

“Look! That is a firetruck! That is the firetruck on my birthday cake!”

I glance at the picture. And laugh.

“Firetruck? Timmy, love, that is a ladybug. Not even close, buddie.”

He lowers the cup and peers once again at the picture. Then he turns to Anna, who sits beside him on the bottom stair. He whispers to her.

“Look! That is the firetruck on my birthday cake!”

He knows what he knows. Either that, or the bakery has an artistically-challenged decorator…
